To protect Wohlford from invasive exotic Quagga mussels, there is still a ban on private water craft and equipment that could have been exposed to mussels. Restricted equipment includes private boats, canoes, kayaks, float tubes, trolling motors, fish finders, anchors, and other equipment that contacts the water.
Lake Wohlford is offering $20 all day motor boats to seniors on Tuesdays and Thursdays and to active military on the first and third Saturdays of each month.
Catfish are being caught throughout the lake. Near limits are being reported by those fisherman willing to endure the oppressive heat and stay past mid-morning. Lake Wohlford cats prefer cut mackerel or chicken liver. Stop by the ranger station for a dough-bait recipe that works wonders on catfish, as well as carp.
It was a good week for bass fishing with plenty of small to medium sized bass being recorded. Roy Hammond of Escondido caught & released an 8.20# bass he landed on Senior Shoreline using a frog. Frog poppers have become the go to bait when fishing near the abundant reeds. Crawdads and dark colored plastics do well also.
Each month Whopper Contest winners in four categories are awarded a free fishing and boating permit. For information on the contest or fishing conditions, please contact the Ranger Station at (760) 839-4346.
